One thing is clear, the brass is giving Shula the benefit of the doubt.

lol Shulas hands were tied. He's already working with t-rex arms and the OL injuries last year put a Chinese finger trap on those.

Shula is a scapegoat, only on here can you have a discussion about how piss poor our online and Wr core perform, then turn around and blame it completely on the oc. For the 100th time, it was due to execution and not having the players to execute the scheme, but let's roll the Shula blame train out

You make adjustments based on what your given. If you try the same things with different personell and not scheming based on your team's strengths and weaknesses then your a bad OC period. You can flaunt injuries all you want but he's been like this his entire career.

Shula might not have had the necessary personnel but that doesn't excuse the lack of in-game adjustments that cost us multiple games this season.

I didn't take what you said an run way to far with it. You said Shula's hands were tied because we didn't get a second tight end, and his offense couldn't evolve. 

And it's not anger, it's frustration. Our O-line couldn't block for longer than 2.5 seconds last year, but we still ran the same long developing plays over and over. We barely use our RBs in our passing game, which takes away a whole facet to the offense from our backs. Defenses can play the run because they know we're not going to pass to our RBs. With one of the highest scoring offenses in the NFL, he wasn't out interviewing for HC gigs because other teams knew it was Cam making it happen, not Shula. For fugs sake, he was using our franchise QB as a RB. Cam has taken over 300 more hits than any other QB during the span of his career. You don't do that to your franchise QB on purpose. If Cam hadn't been forced and able to carry the offense for so long, Shula would be gone.

 

 

OC's design plays.  Player execute them.  If you rewatch the games, especially if you have access to the all 22, you could see where Cam didn't check down as much as he should.  Yes there were some plays that were longer developing, etc.. but on a lot of plays, the short completions were ignored by Cam.   Even after all that talk in preseason of taking what the defense gave, he either didn't do it, or didn't have time to do it.  

As far as the read option you may have a point.  However, Cam only seems to get hurt in the pocket and when he's not paying attention (or showboating).  Other than that he usually doesn't take big hits Outside of the goal line.  I don't think we will ever see no aspect of the read option, due to the fact that Cam is such a weapon at it.

The reason Shula gets crucified is because of the play calling he does no matter what. He doesn't make half time adjustments which creates bad 2nd half play even in our 15-1 season he was terrible at it and has been his whole career. 

He also doesn't change things game to game just ask the broncos who said our offense didn't do anything different than what they saw all season and they were ready for it. 

Not to mention his propensity to call long developing plays in situations that you know the other team is blitzing and you need to get the ball out quickly also running slow ass big WRs in go routes trying to get them deep. 

Last year he did try slants with our big WR and it worked but he kept regressing back to his old play calls. 

Shula plays also mostly require perfect execution to be successful with every part being perfect. Well in the NFL that's rarely possible and unless your lucky that's not a path to sustained success because you can't plan injuries or mental mistakes. Most good OC can change things if they lose someone or know a players doing poorly in a game. Shula sticks to the plan no matter what. 

This is why we rag on Shula so much and hate him so fervently. It's not ignorance but years of watching him do the same things throughout his entire career.

Most of the complaints have little basis in reality. Everyone talks about lack of adjustments but no one talks about how we got a 20 point lead in the first half. 

And no the offense doesn't have to be perfect to succeed. I don't know where that is coming from. Is Cam even an accurate quarterback let only a perfect passer. Please.....

Shuls sticks to the same thing like he kept the offense the same in 2015 when KB went down. Or did he totally revamp the running game?

The ragging comes from ignorance but not on Shula's part. I guess the huddle logic is if you say it often enough it must be true even if it isn't based on reality.

As you say if the offense needs quick hitters who makes the call? Cam not Shula. As you noted there were plenty of times when a team blitzed from one side or the other the general rule is throw in that direction since the blitzer just vacated a coverage area and someone is wide open in the flat. Instead Cam would roll away from pressure and totally ignore the wide open back or receiver. Other guys just toss it over the blitzers head to a wide open receiver or back and make positive yards.

Yeah because he didn't revamp the whole offense in 2015 to account for KB going down and totally change the running game. But he can't do it and never has even though he did it and we had the number 1 offense in the league.

But keep on making things up. You are doing great....

We didn't.lose games due to poor adjustments nearly as much as we lost by poor defense especially early in the year. But let's focus on Shula. McDermott didn't have his personnel either but why aren't we castigating him due to poor in game adjustments.

Maybe if you don't have the right folks to run your scheme, there is only so much you can do...... This is the NFL not high school ball. All coaches are smart and make adjustments on every series and often every play.

If the only reason Shula can't evolve his offense as an OC is we didn't have a second TE, then that's says far more about his abilities than anything. What if we had gotten a second TE and he had gotten hurt? Would we have just thrown away our entire season because the second TE got injured and Shula couldn't evolve? I'm sorry, but Shula couldn't evolve his offense because we didn't pick up a second TE is a piss poor excuse for his failure as an OC. That's his freaking job. 

 

We couldn't evolve the offense because we had multiple injuries to linemen and rarely had the same guys out there 2 weeks in a row. When you have to focus on the basics and building chemistry each week you can't focus on evolving when you are just surviving.

Show me one other offense starting lineman who were on the streets 2 weeks earlier  ( were down to their  third center with neither tackle starting  at their designated position ) coupled with a bottom five receiver group that finished in the top 10 in 2016.

McDermott and Rivera got plenty of flack for the defensive woes earlier this season. Poor defense definitely played a part in letting teams come back in games we had solid leads in. But a big part of that was going 3 and out in many crucial late game possessions due to predictable run-run-pass gameplan.
